You May Save A Life – Strength Magazine – July, 1927

With another summer rolling around, the crowds are certain to be congregating at the bathing beaches at the seashore, and on the shores of every lake and river that is handy enough and not too polluted to make bathing impossible. And once again the water will claim a large number of victims; many of these will actually disappear out of sight so there will be no possibility of saving their lives, but the pity of it is that a goodly proportion of those who succumb to drowning will be brought out of the water before death actually claims them as a victim, only to lose this last chance for life because no one present understands a method of reviving them.
